Highland Lakes SPCA


The Highland Lakes SPCA operates in the Highland Lakes area of central Texas, including Burnet, Llano, Blanco, and Travis counties. We serve the towns of Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay, Spicewood, Kingsland and Burnet. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit group composed almost entirely of volunteers and funded by donations and fund raisers. We receive no financial assistance from any local or national governmental agencies.

We are a "No-Kill" dog rescue organization.  What does our "No-Kill" policy mean?  Once a dog is accepted into our adoption program, they are not euthanized for space reasons.  Unless there are medical or behavioral issues that develop deeming a dog un-adoptable, dogs will stay in our shelter until they find their forever homes.  

We work to take dogs out of the city and county facilities in Marble Falls, Buchanan Dam, Austin  and Georgetown. As space allows, we also take in surrenders from people who have found abandoned or stray dogs and from owners who are no longer able to provide for their dogs.

Since we believe that spaying and neutering is the only way to control pet overpopulation, we actively speak with individuals about getting their animals spayed and neutered.  We recommend contacting any of our local veterinarians to spay or neuter your pet and to continue vaccination schedules and long-term health care regimens for your pets. Please call us if you are new to the area and would like a recommendation. We can also put you in touch with the low cost spay/neuter clinics that come to our area.

If you have an animal emergency or need information related to wildlife or a domestic animal in need, please contact Animal Help Now at ahnow.org for information and resources.

Great news!  We have completed our new indoor shelter facility.  Thank all of you who have donated over the past 4-5 years to help make this dream happen.  The dogs love it, as do the volunteers and staff.
